Spur (Frank Musch; born 1973) is a musician who shares the love for experimental music.
He took music lessons by the age of 19 and learned to play several instruments.
In 1995, influenced by the re-releases of classic industrial tunes,
Spur recorded his first piece of 'music': a 20-minute long sound collage, guiding the listener through
a apocalyptic audio landscape. Many recordings would follow, until the summer of 1996,
when he released his first cassette: 'Selected Intuition Works'. Still hanging on to that industrial sound,
the three tracks on that cassette share the raw, unpleasant drill.
In 1997, the second cassette was released: 'Grazest Hits'.
Now drum 'n' bass was also a part of the dictionairy.
While still experimental, the sound proved to be more accessible now.
Even 'The Adventures Of The Consumed Cheeseburger' could have that commercial touch.
As performances were mainly try-outs and occasional shows at the Uitmarkt in Hellevoetsluis,
Spur kept working on his definition of sound. Intense listening to especially
Mark Stewart & the Mafia and Death in Vegas distilled his ideas for sound creation and innovation.
That process lead to the mini album 'Drinkfist Refreshing' (released 1999),
an album that is the foretaste of a personal defined sound.
However, Drinkfist proves not to be that brilliant. But as said: The best has yet to come.
And that might be Blasthead (2002). This is an album which is the ultimate flow to a awesome
trip of noise, energy, funk and ambient.
The impact of 'Blasthead' appeared to be more effective, with first success in Japan and
airplay on French Radio. Spur has now produced a new album, "Origin Park Family Tree".
It is an electro dance album with guest appearances by musical friends. Spur has also
remixed a track form Melojustice and has made a video that has been shown on ETV in Rotterdam.
He collaborated with some musical friends to achieve the reincarnation of Eendrachtspop,
a pop festival that used to be held in Rotterdam in the late 1980s.
In October 2007, he co-organised the crossover night Rockterdance in the Exit in Rotterdam,
a night that featured Mental Youth, Melojustice, Monokino and DJ Wesper. Another successful
edition of Eendrachtspop was held in april 2008. As DJ Wesper as his other alias, Spur also produced
a second video during the year 2008. The video featured some well-known dutch models.
DJ Wesper Laguêpe's performances have mainly been held at small venues, such as
DJ Café Bootleg in Rotterdam and DJ Café Vaaghuyzen in Amsterdam, where he celebrated his
35th birthday along with DJ's from the Champagnoise DJ collective. In 2009,
it's time to hit the road in France. He has played at Prun FM in Nantes and he has invited that
Dj team to perform in Rotterdam on October 10.
